Ko-Ox Han nah (referred to as "Han nahs" by locals), is a small little shop right in downtown San Ignacio. We stopped here for dinner on our first night in town, as recommended by our hosts at the Vanilla Hills lodge. The food was good with large portions for the price. I ordered the quesadilla, which had capers in it... More

Great food. The place is small, so we had to wait over 20 minutes our first time there. If you want to avoid a wait, go early (before 7:30).

If you walk by this place in the evening, you will most likely see the majority of the tables taken. Very popular with ex-pats, and the service is quite good. Prices are very reasonable for the serving size, and we ate here twice during our San Ignacio stay. We had the beef ragout, burrito, and lamb curry. The lamb curry... More

This was about the 15th rice & beans I ate in Belize and it was the best. Coconut rice, stew beans (= black beans in the cooking liquid, seasoned with black pepper) and stewed chicken (= chicken parts cooked in a savory broth that I think is typically seasoned with achiote and a few other things). It was great. Everyone... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel as one of the best places to eat in San Ignacio. We almost decided not to go because when we initially walked by nobody was eating there, but once we sat down we knew we made the right choice. Also, the place soon filled up with people for dinner. We had jerk... More

We got into the restaurant toward the end of their day, but the staff were totally accommodating, even though they likely would have wanted to be cleaning up and getting outta there. We each had a different curry dish, so that we could share, but neither one of us wanted to give up part of our meal! (We did anyway... More

We had one excellent breakfast (with local coffee) and kept coming back. Consistently good breakfasts, a wide variety of dishes for lunch and dinner, and a complete drinks menu. Daily specials offered too. We watched as the evening's desserts were delivered from other local shops. This is the place to try if you're in San Ignacio for a few days.
